Dusit International has signed an agreement with Rich Mandalay Group to operate Asai Yankin, one of the first properties to be signed under its new affordable lifestyle brand.
Located in Yankin Township in the northern central part of Yangon, approximately 25 minutes by car from Yangon International Airport, Asai Yankin is designed to give millennial-minded travellers the opportunity to experience the city like a local.
Asai Yankin will comprise 111 compact rooms whose contemporary design will emphasise key features such as superior quality beds and high-pressure rain showers.
A large mixed-use space, meanwhile, will include a modern and efficient work space, a leisure area, and a restaurant concept curated by local chefs.
The hotel will also offer a fully equipped gym, and two retail floors highlighting local brands and products.
Following Asai’s slogan, Live Local, the hotel will put guests within easy reach of nearby attractions such as Yankin Market, Fushan temple, and the lively restaurant scene of New University Road.
“Inspired by community, and driven by sustainability, Asai is designed to link millennial-minded travellers with authentic local experiences while having a positive impact, environmentally and socially,” said Siradej Donavanik, managing director of Asai Holdings, Dusit International.
Alongside Asai Yankin, four more properties are already confirmed in the pipeline.
These include three Asai Hotels in Cebu, Philippines (in Lapu-Lapu, Oslob, and the city centre); and a flagship Asai hotel in Bangkok, Thailand, in the city’s stylish Sathorn district.
